BR CLASS 08 SHUNTER PREORDER - SOLD OUT!
Whilst production of this loco has been ongoing at a good pace during the global pandemic we have had to revise the release date due to the effects on the supply chain of some crucial elements of the build.
Therefore, unavoidably our new anticipated release will now be at the end of October with dispatches commencing early November. We apologise for delaying the pleasure of holding one of these beauties in your hands but ask you to bear with us whilst we continue to dot the i's and cross the T's ;) to bring you the World's smallest Diesel Locomotive.
The Preorders of this new locomotive have now sold out. Once all preorders have been fulfilled, there will be a second batch available later in the year (2020).
Please sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to be notified when the second release is available.
An opportunity to be among the first 100 people to own a TGauge BR Class 08 Shunter at a seriously knocked down price!
Please read the full description before ordering.
Originally built in the UK between 1952-1962 the BR Class 08 Shunter was a diesel electric workhorse that every railway line/yard needed. With a top speed of 15mph and enough power to pack a punch it no doubt justified earning its nickname Gronk. However, modern day changes to the railway meant less need for such a powerhouse and many have since been exported, sold to industrial or heritage railways or converted.
